Paradise Kennels was founded in 1977 by Richard B. Lord. Built on a passion and love for animals, Paradise Kennels has been building bonds with customers and their pets for over 40 years. 


That tradition continues through his daughter, Ashton Thompson, and the long-term staff that continues to strive for excellence in the pet care industry. 


Whether we are bathing, grooming, or keeping your pets while you vacation, they will receive the highest quality of care while here at Paradise Kennels. Our staff loves what they do and creates the welcoming atmosphere that makes your pets feel right at home. 


Come by to meet our staff and tour our facility anytime between 9am and 2pm Monday through Saturday!


Since birth, Ashton has spent her days growing up here at Paradise Kennels. Even as a small child she had the same passion and love for animals as her father. 


Ashton made her start in the pet care industry at a young age as "pet cuddler". She quickly moved up to painting toe nails, making bows, and working in the kennels before following in her fathers foot steps and becoming a pet groomer. She began grooming as a teenager after school and became a full-time groomer after graduation. Now with a lifetime of experience perfecting her skills, she still spends her days at the grooming table, doing what she loves.


You might get to meet Blue, Hurley, Rex, Watson, or Bruce if you visit us here at Paradise Kennels; her pups often accompany her to work. The calico kitty, Penny, that might greet you in the parking lot is another one of her children, however her other kitten, Gray Kitty, prefers to spend his days inside the house. 


It has given her great appreciation to have Paradise left in her care, and tremendous pride to carry on the family tradition. With her Husband Dovovan by her side, they continue looking towards the furture for Paradise, striving to continue to build trust and strong bonds with the pet owners of Augusta, and to stay at the forefront of the pet care industry.
